Saint George signs a Ghanaian; Dawzi, Lucky joins Police


Saint George signed an attacker from Ghana to replace the outgoing Nigerian Alex Orotoma while relegation threatened new comers Debub Police signed two Nigerians with a lot of experience in Ethiopian Football.
The Ghanaian side All Star’s former striker, 25 year- old Richard Arthur joined Saint George on a two-year contract and the first to put pen to paper under the newly appointed English Coach Stewart Hall. Although other foreign players are expected to join Stewart soon, critics are suggesting Saint George already has a strong strike force comprised of home boys.
Getaneh Kebede and Salhadin Said’s return after months of injury turned out to be a success story in a 5-1 demolition of Mekelakeya and upcoming forward Abel Yalew has been impressive so far with four goals to his name. Saint George appears to have enough firearms to battle for the title. According to critics, the arrival of these foreign players in the absence of international fixtures for the first time in five seasons, could be considered a waste of finance and talent.
In the mean time new comers Debub Police managed to convince two Nigerians: Former Electric, Dedebit and NegedBank striker Philip Dawzi and compatriot Lucky Sunny to one year contracts. Late in appointing Coach Zelalem Shiferaw and even later in joining players’ transfer` market, Debub Police are struggling to survive at the upper tier sitting 15th in the table collecting five points from ten matches. Dawzi; once runner-up top scorer of the season bagging 19 goals is expected to bring a real difference for the relegation battlers Debub Police.
